I need to add CMFCOutlookbar control in my application. I used MSDN help and successfully able to add this control in the new applications in VS2008. But when i tried the same in my existing application, its giving crash while adding tabs.
Here is the code :
BOOL flag = m_wndOutlookBar.Create (_T("Shortcuts"), this, CRect (0, 0, 100, 200), ID_VIEW_NAVIGATION, WS_CHILD | WS_VISIBLE | CBRS_LEFT);
CMFCOutlookBarTabCtrl* pOutlookBar = (CMFCOutlookBarTabCtrl*) m_wndOutlookBar.GetUnderlyingWindow ();
flag = m_wndOutlookPane.Create (&m_wndOutlookBar, AFX_DEFAULT_TOOLBAR_STYLE, IDS_OUTLOOKBAR, AFX_CBRS_FLOAT | AFX_CBRS_RESIZE);
// make the Outlook pane detachable (enable docking)
flag = m_wndOutlookPane.AddButton (IDR_MAINFRAME, _T("Open"), ID_FILE_OPEN);
flag = pOutlookBar->IsMode2003();
pOutlookBar->AddTab (&m_wndOutlookPane, _T("Normal"), (UINT) -1, TRUE); //Giving crash at this line
pOutlookBar->AddTab (&m_wndOutlookPane, _T("Kernel"), (UINT) -1, TRUE);
It would be very helpful if anybody gives me directions to fix this problem.
Thanks in advance !!
What is the difference between *your application* and a *new MFC application*?
Its already developed application and has 5 splitter windows created in child frame. One of the splitter window contains the main view, which display some list control. I am told to display outlookbar in that view and list under outlook bar.
So outlookbar control display is the first step to do this task, where i am facing a problem.
Problem was with main frame and child frame base classes. As project was started in VS2005, base classes were CMDIFrameWnd and CMDIChildWnd. I modified the code support extended classes and got it working.
I dont know whats the actual reason but it seems to be compatibility issue while migration from VS2005 to VS2008.
